Chicago International Film Festival 50th Anniversary | Series Info
When artist Jean Baptiste (Jean-Louis Trintignant) dies, assorted friends and relatives flock to a Paris train station to travel to Limoges, where the dead painter wanted to be buried. During the four-hour train trip, we discover that most of them were lovers of the dead painter, and they remain under his grip even after he’s gone. Aboard the train, the survivor’s long-simmering problems flare up, including sexual jealousies, addiction, and suicide, creating conflicts that led *Variety* to remark that the film “makes the average Woody Allen film seem like a picnic for the well-adjusted.” But with Chereau’s direction, even the awkward moments are vivid and beautiful. French with English subtitles. 122 minutes. In 1998, Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train was an Official Selection at the 34th Chicago International Film Festival.
